Dear Jen,

I have not heard from you for awhile. Either you are extremely busy or you are offended by my birthday request. I hope that it is because you are busy. I really enjoy receiving letters from you because they always seem to be enthusiastic letters. It is very hard for me to remain enthusiastic unless I am around people that are. So if my letters don't sound too enthusiastic you could probably guess why. There are many awesome things going on right now. We just met a family that is way golden and will be baptized soon. I thank God for His love in sending these people my direction; for letting me be a part of this. I do appreciate you also Jennifer!

Dear Jennifer,

I am sorry that I did not get a chance to write back to you sooner also. Many things have come up within the missionary labors. I have a new companion now. His name is Elder Humphreys. He is fairly new and is looking forward to the work to be done in this area. I guess the reason it has been quite hectic in my letter writing situation is because I recently had a large flow of letters due to it being my 21st birthday on the 4th of March.

It is crazy to think that I am 21 years old. I don’t feel that old. I don’t even think I look that old. I am grateful it is my birthday because I get to hear from more people I wouldn’t normally hear from. They all have said kind things to me and even some things that I don’t feel I have done well at, they admire my efforts graciously. I am indeed blessed by having such good friends.

Well, I am pleased to hear that the move you made was successful and was accomplished without too much difficulty. Is the new apt. different in size or anyway?…

Lots of Info - Long Letter!

Elder Woolf -

Hey buddy! I haven't heard from you in a while. I hope you're still alive. :)

Not too much is happening here. I'm excited cause it's getting warmer! :)


I'm excited! :)

Let's see... What's new in Minnesota...
I just got a job at Pizza Hut. That's great- because my funds were getting severely low.

Guess what?!!! For Spring Break I'm probably going to California!! I'm soooo excited !! :)
That's my really big news! :) I'm totally excited about that! I'd be there for a week and a half.
I'm going to see a good friend of mine that I met at EFY.

So what's been up with you?

O.K. you can now officially call me a slacker!! The date today is March 29, 1993. Cool, huh?
Trust me - I haven't forgotten about you. But you wouldn't believe how busy I've been!! I swear this has been the busiest month I've ever had. Let's see...

We went on a choir trip to Gustavus Adolp…
